Attendance at the Hearings
Parliament invites the public, interested groups and organizations to attend these hearings and submit their views on the Bill and any recommendations for changes. Contributions made at the hearings will be considered by the Portfolio Committee and will be part of the Committee’s report that will be presented to the National Assembly when the Bill comes up for debate. So this is a good opportunity to ensure that MPs know what the general public and stakeholders think about the Bill.
As is customary at such hearings, persons wearing military uniforms, badges of rank, flags and or political party regalia will not be allowed access to the hearings.
Written submissions and correspondence are welcome and should be addressed to:
The Clerk of Parliament

Wrong Numbering of Previous Bulletin
The previous bulletin in this Parliamentary Committees Series was wrongly headed “15/2018” instead of “16/2018”. Hence this bulletin has been numbered “17/2018”. The entries on the Veritas website www.veritaszim.net have been corrected accordingly.
